This is form level property. I think there is AcceptButton property on the form. You can associate this with one of the buttons so when you press enter, it will actually fire click event of this button.

I tried setting the Focus-Enter-Property or event to the submit button, but it didn't work.
Is that is what you were referring if not, can you what exactly it is?

If you select the form in the design mode, Press F4 to view Form properties, you will find two properties:

1. AcceptButton
Gets/Sets the button on the form that is pressed when the user uses the enter key

2. CancelButton
Indicates the button control that is pressed when the user presses the ESC key

You can associate one of the buttons on the form, to these properties. Once you have associated these properties with respective buttons on the form, the button's event handlers will be invoked automatically when you press ENTER or ESC key.

So in your case assoicate Submit button with AcceptButton property of the form.

In the keydown event for the last textbox you can do something like this:
If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter Then
   Me.Button1.Select()
End If
